Olympus E-510: How Much Is Image Stabilization Worth to You?

The Olympus E 510 differs in one major way from the earlier discussed E 410: it has a built-in mechanical image stabilizer. Now, who’s willing to pay $100 more for image stabilization? (Yes, the E 510 will set you back an extra $100 compared to the E 410.) Sure, you’ll still get all the relatively impressive features of the E 410, like a 10-megapixel image sensor and the Live View LCD, but unless you’ve got the shakes like Muhammad Ali, methinks the E 510 needs to do something else to demand an extra Benjamin. Thank goodness there’s an extra shot inside.
